About Historical Chinatown Tours
Here's how my tours work ... I customize them to what people want. I'm the only guide who can take people into the heritage buildings, the only one that has a Master's degree in Chinese Canadian History, and I donate money to the Chinese associations for upkeep and renovations. I take people into numerous clan and county Association buildings, to a herbal store, to a produce store, etc. Tell me what you want the focus of the tour to be and I will make it happen.

The tour was a Christmas present from my two sons. We went with their families and everyone had a great time. Judy took us for a tour of Chinatown, then she taught us how to make dumplings. Instructive,fun, and tasty! Highly recommended.

We did the tour as a surprise birthday gift for my wife, with friends and our adult daughter. We all loved Judy's telling of the history, architecture, and current state of affairs of Vancouver's Chinatown. We saw and learned so many interesting things about Vancouver's Chinatown that we never would have known without someone like Judy who is so connected in so many ways to Vancouver's Chinatown. We also loved how Judy's storytelling connected to Chinatowns around the world and the indigneous and Sikh experiences of immigration to Canada. Also, we all loved the dim sum choices by Judy. The tour and Judy were awesome! I will be recommending the tour to all my friends.

Me and my partner had a private dumpling lesson with Judy this past weekend. Judy was a fountain of knowledge about the area, with lots of interesting stories and photos to share. The dumpling making was fun and delicious, with fresh ingredients and helpful tips. We had a lovely time!

Judy is an excellent tour guide. So well knowledgeable and she described and explained the history of Chinatown so wonderfully! Thank you as well for the lovely 'food stops' and the further resource on restaurants. Appreciate the time and the effort. Definitely highly recommend Judy.

Fantastic tour. Judy is very personable and because of her family ties to the community, she is brimming with knowledge and insight into the culture, cuisine, architecture, and long history of the neighborhood. As well as access to many places that are unknown or off limits to tourists (and even most locals). During the walk she was greeted warmly by all of the locals we encountered, and then she would have an interesting story to tell about the people we met. A couple times we arrived at a building that seemed closed, but then Judy would have a quick chat with the security guard and we would be waved in with a smile. Being able to visit the Society Buildings was a highlight, we peeked in on a roomful of locals playing Mahjong (the clacking of the tiles was deafening), and saw piles of dragon heads in storage for the New Years parade.
